More about COMMANDS trial participation

Participation in the study lasts approximately six years (and may be shorter or longer for certain patients). This includes:

• a screening period of approximately 35 days,
• an initial 24-week treatment period (which may be extended if certain criteria are met and if you continue to benefit from the treatment), and
• a follow-up period where you will be contacted approximately every 12 weeks to ask how you are doing. 

The study drug being used in the COMMANDS Trial is called luspatercept, which is a protein that aims to help increase the production of red blood cells in bone marrow. Luspatercept will be administered as an injection every three weeks during the treatment period.
